Absolutely uncomfortable. No pillows in a 10.5 hour flight. The blankets were super thin and tiny. The food, especially breakfast, was terrible.

Absolutely uncomfortable. No pillows in a 10.5 hour flight. The blankets were super thin and tiny. The food, especially breakfast, was terrible.

2 hours delayed no fair

I paid for my luggage online but they couldn’t confirm in their system and had to charge me again. Not happy about that

It was great. Nothing to change.

The Campinas airport has very poor signage, access for gate A8 is very confusing. Need more info on how to get from a domestic flight to international boarding. The place is a maze

The only thing that was inconvenient about this flight was the check in process. There was a lot of confusion. The flight itself was very good. Super friendly attendants, decent food, good in-flight entertainment.

Good have been much better being informed of the delayed.

I have some pictures to prove it , my flight from SP to Fort Lauderdale I could not sleep at all. Not only me but the passenger in front of me . The seat was broken, where you rest your head it was falling apart, I tried to put it back but kept falling. The flight attendant tried once and gave up . I asked to change seats and they did not let me do . I had to fly basically straight all night , I could not rest my head on the seat. Never again with this company

I couldn’t get over how there were cameras to look at outside of the plane for those who didn’t have window seats as it helped with some landing anxiety. The food was well prepped and decently enjoyable! The charging port was also amazing and I was very happy to see it when I had boarded the plane."

I did not get an email or text alert relating to the delay. When I checked in at 9:00pm, the counter agent did not alert me to the change in departure time. It wasn't until I looked at the Departure board in the Avianca lounge did I know of the 3+ hr. delay. When we finally boarded, at least the captain was kind enough to explain the reason for the delay - Avianca needed to change aircrafts, then the originally slated captain called in sick and his replacement had to wait out the required time off as he had just completed a long haul flight from Canada to Colombia. Great job running a company Avianca..."
Pros: "Leg space is great in avianca, the food is very good and awesome customer service. Hope this company never change their way to service Customers. Thank you Avianca"
Cons: "Airline connecting flight from rio to Lima to miami. First flight was delayed, the four of us missed our second flight. Then we had to go to bogota from Lima and run to make it to our last flight. All of this made us miss work and sleep, 26 in airports and airplanes. The worst experience. Rude staff on top of it all"

Pros: "The crew was kind and helped with getting bags in the overhead bin."
Cons: "The announcements were all in Spanish and it made it difficult for me to understand what I needed to do. I acknowledge that I was one of a very few passengers who spoke only English, so this was not a problem for many people. The leg room on the flight was incredibly cramped."
Pros: "The seats were very comfortable with a fresh package of pillow/blanket and earphones waiting for us. A free meal, and snack. The take-off and landing were timely."
Cons: "The bathroom was the worst I have ever seen. Old urine splattered on the seat (it had to have been left uncleaned from an earlier flight). There was no soap, The floor as still wet from urine and tp was still there. I was disguisted. Also there were only one bathroom in the back of the plane, which must have been a way to get more available seats. If other airplanes take that tactic, I'll stop flying altogether."
Pros: "Nothing special airline"
Cons: "Poor quality for the price old plane"
Pros: "Everything"
Cons: "The food is just okay but at least they don’t make you pay for it"
Pros: "I enjoy Avianca unless I am flying out of bogota... friendly staff and economical."
Cons: "At many airports such as bogota there is always a REDICULOUS wait! Even if you pre checked in, you must wait 2 hours in a crazy line just to drop your luggage. 2 hours!! I have flown through bogota 10 times and the line is always over an hour long. This is insanity! I have visited 30 countries and never have experienced a mess like this. I hate flying Avianca out of bogota and will pick other airlines because of the crazy lines. I will fly into Latin America using Avianca but I will always use a separate airline to leave because of the mess."
Pros: "Great airplanes."
Cons: "2 hrs to drop one bag and 1 hr and 18 min delay. Poor coordination with the staff."

Pros: "The flight over to Bogota from NYC was perfect. No complaints. I was raving about it."
Cons: "We sat on the runway and then returned to the gate, resulting in a 2 hour delay, due to a faulty smoke detector in the bathroom. There was a lack of communication about status. At one point, they shut the air. Several times they shut off and restarted the entertainment system. It would have helped if they went through the cabin with water or a snack. It was a long wait and we had no idea why..."
Pros: "Flight went smooth, crew was attentive"
Cons: "The seat's headphone jack was broken and it was difficult to recline. My seat numbers were changed on one flight and to other in the second part... Not expected"
Pros: "I arrived at my destination with everything."
Cons: "1. I accepted a voucher in exchange for getting bumped from an overbooked flight. I gave it to my friend. It's very difficult to use. I won't do it again unless it's for a lot of money, or cash. 2. My screen didn't work on the plane."
Pros: "Everything was good"
Cons: "Little food"

Everything was nice

I liked it, it was nice.

Everything good 👍

Flight was delayed multiple times

Delta appears to lack honesty

My lay over was changed so that my flight was boarding on the opposite side of the airport at the same minute I was walking through the gangway getting off my first flight. I took screen shots of the times and it was alarming to say the least.

Pros: "Everything. Very nice accommodating ok"
Pros: "Crew and boarding were great, which I expect from a premium carrier like delta."
Cons: "Perfect day outside, not a busy day or time to fly. The email forbhe plane being late was was too last minute. A heads up sooner would have been nice. That way we’re not waiting at the airport."
Pros: "drink carts came around twice"
Cons: "Even though there were sunchips available, they were not giving them out to everyone. Only the people that paid up in coach got the sun chips. The rest of us got these sad bag of pretzels and cheesey snacks. So sad. Why wouldn't Delta offer the same snacks to everyone? Seems like such a small additional cost compared to such an offensive action. The money you save is certainly lost in bad publicity."

Pros: "Crew was nice. Flight very smooth"
Cons: "We had to get seats at boarding because of the flight delay. She offered us two seats in the back. I knew they don't pushback so I said no. She had given the woman ahead of me two seats in comfort plus. Did not offer that and was rude. There were at least a few empty seats in that area. As a courtesy to us having 1)been delayed in Costa Rica. And then 2) a long wait for the connecting flight in Atlanta it would have been reasonable to offer those seats. Which remained empty"
Pros: "Boarding was quick. Staff and crew were friendly. Everything went well despite the 30 min delay we had on the runway. They gave us snacks and we ended up still arriving on time."

Cons: "some choice of indian movies would be appreciated."
Pros: "Boarding was efficient"
Cons: "My luggage didn't arrive with me"
Cons: "The plane was delayed by more than 3 hours due to "weather problems" earlier in the day. Delta did not permit re-booking to flights that left JFK for Boston earlier, even tho there seats available, instead insisting that we had to wait for our assigned flight. Small snacks (regular Coke, no Diet) did not really compensate well."
Cons: "Flight delayed due to weather and mechanical.. nightmare! Still not sure when I'll get to DCA . I was suppose to get in at 9:30 pm. Flight from atlanta won't leave until 10:20 pm."
Pros: "Polite and efficient"
Cons: "Nothing"
Pros: "The crew was very accommodating and helpful and the new entertainment systems with the free movies are awesome. Because of the heat in the cabin we received additional beverage service and follow up waters"

Pros: "Good Entertainment"

Pros: "I'm not sure but it seemed as though the isle was wider than before or other airlines. It looks as nice not having the beverage cart hit my elbow when it went down the isle."

Cons: "Would've been better without the delay, but the aircraft was late getting to Atlanta."
Cons: "I loked everything in my trip"

Plane was a bit cool. Availability of some snacks would have been nice. Even in economy leg room was quite good. Seats comfortable. Boarding process very good for us seniors citizens. On time takeoff. Quick turnaround on baggage. Would definitely recommend COPA to others.

Terrible for the price

I love traveling with Copa Airlines and I will always travel with them if they have the route that I want to go.

Crew at the gate was rude.

To hot befor the flight departure. And the food is very poor quality, the bread doesn’t test fresh.

Pros: "Wonderful service, and also gave me a upgrade"
Cons: "The problem was some other travelers. A family traveling with 2 one of them a toddler. The family arbitrarily changed there own seats which created problems when the rightful passengers arrived. The toddler was unusually fussy and cried a lot. Not COPA's fault but bothersome non the less."
Pros: "Crew was friendly"
Cons: "Food options ran out twice and it tasted terrible. Seats were very uncomfortable"
Pros: "The crew was friendly, the food was actually good for airline food and the flight was smooth."
Cons: "I wish I had a map on the screen of where we were."
Pros: "If you get in line early, there might be overhead bin space."
Cons: "Seats are awful. FAs don't want to speak slowly so you can understand them or English, basically saying they don't care. Every Copa flight I have taken is a late departure."

Cons: "Massive lines to check in and they lost one of our luggage. Ground staff was really poor."
Pros: "Price"

Cons: "I don’t think I did not like anything to be honest."
Pros: "Nothing"

Pros: "Everything"
Pros: "Convenient times."
Cons: "Service level was pretty amateur—late food, understaffed, had to ask for things repeatedly. Business class seats are very dated."
Pros: "The flight from Rio to Panama was very good. The only complaint I have is the food, which is too simple and it could taste a little better. All my flights were on time and arrived in time at the destinations. They have an excellent option for entertainment with good movies and documentaries."
Pros: "Service was excellent Very impressed with the accommodations. I was traveling with my elderly parents. I requested wheelchair assistance for them. They were well taken cared of."

Pros: "The boarding in the crew or fine"
Cons: "The entertainment was almost 0, the chicken sandwich was horrible."
Pros: "Tv's and that there were 2 open seats next to me."
Cons: "Food is atrocious."
Pros: "Went by quick, great staff"
Cons: "Nothing"
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled minutes within booking but still charged to our credit card for 10 days, meaning we never actually made it to rio and lost our deposit on our hostel."
Pros: "I bought a return ticket from Panama City to Rio on Kayak and was not notified that a Yellow Fever shot was necessary for re-entry to Panama. Turned back at the air port in Rio I had to spend an extra 13 days in Rio de Janeiro at my expense, three to see doctor and get vacine, plus ren day waiting period."
Cons: "To change ticket I had to pay change fee plus fare difference. Copa said it was not their responsibility to notify passengers of health alerts and Kayak should be responsible. Needless to say I was on the hook for the time and the bill. I have flown Copa with satisfaction a number of times but this is enough to discourage me from ever flying them again and possibly ever using Kayak again."

Cons: "No on board entertainment"
Pros: "Good flight"
Cons: "Gate from arrival to connecting flight very far and almost lost my plane"

Pros: "Great crew, always on time,"
Cons: "Older plane with limited first class features (no foot rest and limited reclining), old entertainment system (no personalized entertainment screen per seat)."
Pros: "This was my first time flying with Copa Airlines. I would definitely use them in the future based on my experience. We flew on two, brand new planes on both flights. The in-flight food was of good quality, particularly for airline food. Staff was helpful, and everything from check-in to when we deboarded in our final destination was seamless."
Cons: "Service is terrible, flight attendants don't seem to be very professional. Snack was terrible quality (two pieces of cheese and 6 grapes), breakfast was bad too. Quality of wine was bad, no Champagne, cheap Cava Entertainment system outdated, seat not very comfortable."
Cons: "Late departure because of the weather. Why boarding and have us 2 hours inside the plane waiting?"
Pros: "The leg from RIO to ,Panama the crew crew not pleasant, the service was horrible, they started serving drinks to passengers from the first row to,the back and since the plane was completely full it took forever and the 2 flight attend that were in the galley, refused to, give me a cup of water I had to beg for it saying please I Need any liquid (since I was felling nayseas and needed to,take my medicaction) sol she gave me (practically through me a cup of a warm apple juioe) not even offered ice cubes, plus etc"

Cons: "Little bit of trouble boarding the flight from Panama to Chicago - speakers weren't working and the COPA employees were struggling to communicate with everyone and get them to line up and board according the their group numbers."
Pros: "The crew"
Pros: "This is not the first time flying this itinerary. So , my review counts for many trips. The good: crew, on time, short connection time"
Cons: "Always the worst food. Sometimes, unedible. A bowl of pasta with one tablespoon of tomato sauce. Another choice was tough beef. I mean, really hard to chew beef."

The airline is terrible. They did not allow me to check in a bag ahead of time for my flight. I checked when I bought the ticket, I checked weeks before, I checked each day leading up to the day of my flight if I could add a checked bag and Latam kept telling me I had to do it at the airport when I check in. When I got to the airport they over charged me and told me I could have avoided the charge of $130 if I had paid ahead of time. When I explained that I tried and was told to do it at the airport, they gave me terrible excuses and pretty much told me too bad and robbed me of $130. I will never fly Latam again.

It will be better if Latam will love to tell us when they made changes in my itenary. I feel that my itenary was change to however they like instead of how we arrange when I purchase my ticket. I have two elder people with me and i did not like that we have to split to be able to get home. The counter people does not know how fix situation and don't understand reasons.we wanted to board the plabe together as we purchase the ticket. i dont know why my ticket was the itenary the same as when we left to Peru. I feel that what I choose was not acceptable that.my itenary could be change to however Latam wants to do. That is very not nice and not restpetful to my wishes. Please call us for an apology and maybe a refund for all that we have to go to. My bag is also not get the destinatiin to Jfk.

Cons: "Food quality can be improved a little"
Pros: "Crew was friendly. First class seats fully reclined."

Cons: "only a sandwich and 1 glass of coke for a four hours flight? And if ask for a beer you has to wait until the end of the services... VERY POOR"
Cons: "I needed to change my flight because of a death in the family. To change my flight was more expensive than the initial ticket itself. That is ridiculous. You should not do that to people. There should be a $300 change fee and that's it. At most. The entertainment would be good if I could hear it - but I couldn't. The sound was terrible. Uncomfortable seats. Barely slept. Overal terrible experience. Also turn on the damn entertainment while we are waiting on the tarmac - why wait until we are in the air? Almost every other airline - all the good ones - Emirates, Lufthansa, and other quality airlines - will let you access the in flight entertainment as soon as you sit. But the change cost of the ticket was the most offensive thing. I feel robbed, in a time of tragedy."

Cons: "Long boarding time...however I realize this was a very large and full flight."
Cons: "Seat space,"
Cons: "Customer service was not friendly or helpful in any way shape or form. not concerned for its guests or empathetic. the only thing that came across was that they sincerely didn't care even to make the airline more $$ in selling an upgrade of seats!"

Pros: "Flight schedule, inflight service and food in couch was amazingly the best I had in a long time. The entertainment was delightful.

Pros: "Not much."
Cons: "Everything"
Pros: "Most of the crew was really nice. The plane was extremely new."
Cons: "One crew member jacked my blanket and gave it to a different passenger. Also, my originally assigned window seat was reserved for cabin crew, so I was moved to an aisle seat that was narrower than my previous seat due to its in-armrest tray table."

I had to go over to the international line to drop my luggage and didn't have to get in line once again. The crew was very nice and I was impressed that we received a meal for a 4 hour flight.

Cons: "I paid for the baby basket service but the airline only gave me the adult seat on the basket row, regardless that I was travelling with my wife. Due to that I had to ask the crew to help me to find a passenger willing to change seat with my wife so that she could travel next to my baby boy"
